Lumos Maxima is an opportunity to design and fabricate a light source that modifies your experience of an architectural space. Lumos Maxima begins with a “kit of parts”, i.e. a Bluetooth enabled color LED bulb, a programmable app for manipulating emitted light and a pendant light cord that powers/connects cord and bulb to materials that simultaneously house the light source, distribute light and transform space.

Lumos Maxima will be a study of “unnatural” lighting’s history from Paleolithic oil lamps to solar powered networked LED \systems. Unnatural light will be studied as it relates to architectural history and the ways that oil lamps, candles, fireplaces and light bulbs have changed the way we live and work.

Lumos Maxima will be about research, testing, and experimentation intertwined and grounded in critical contemporary questions which require knowledge of the past and present as well as insights into the future.

Lumos Maxima will be an opportunity for students to begin to study the environment as a cultural, technological, social, and ecological condition in which Design is as much about answering questions as it is about solving problems.
Lumos Maxima explores the relationship between science and engineering through the lens of Design. It examines how transformations in science and technology have influenced design thinking, and vice versa. It offers interdisciplinary tools and methods to represent, model, design and fabricate objects that alter the way we live and work.

Lumos Maxima participants will acquire the elemental skills necessary to research, conceptualize, represent, develop, and fabricate a design solution to a real-world problem.  

Lumos Maxima is an opportunity to discover the relationship between mind & hand. Observations, research and functioning prototypes will be experienced as evidence to support the thesis that physically making an idea from concept to functional object is a unique and critical experience in the education of students in general and students interested in Design in particular.
